Illustrating Watersounds

If it were possible to visually capture the gorgeously lilting sound of flowing water, British illustrator Sarah Abbott, who rather aptly produces work under the moniker Watersounds, would be able to do it. Using a subtle and almost monochrome palette, her art and commissioned design work exudes calm and a keen eye for natural settings, eccentric animal characters, a sense of cute fun and aesthetic simplicity. Really, you have to love that the fox in the second illustration is wearing a Black Flag t-shirt.

Uncover more delightful imagery via Abbott’s personal blog, flickr and her awesome collection blog no mountain, which features postcards and photographs of mountains, hills and lakes.
